This paper presents an ongoing project that focuses on
improving the quality of life for senior citizens by
developing IT support for independent living in their
homes. We introduce a concept that explores and supports
coordination within a social and care community targeting
elderly people. The paper reports on early project findings
such as how elderly perceive a touch screen based interface
and why a touch screen based interface might be favorable
for this category of users in respect to a standard PC.
Furthermore, This paper contributes to the societal debate
on how IT may support ageing in place for the Generation
Plus [2].
